She should at least taste some of the local food first!

Oh thats going to happen trust me!

Anytime now, Noctis will learn that she can *also* speak her mind about Decimus … oh boy!
DLKmusic 28th Nov 2018, 1:41 AM edit delete reply

I think she's figured that out a while ago, but I doubt she would say anything unless "cornered". She blames Decimus for the death of her sisters, and especially the death of Kali, and we already experienced her reaction to being asked about Kali.

Oh, I'm sure Noctis has that figured out, I think there is very little Noctis has not figured out. That does not necessarily translate into action though, unless there is specific need for it. Even here, when she decided that information is more important than not giving information, she still gives absolute minimum information. (Whereas, say, the late Malati would have ranted your ears off about the reasons Deck was banned. And used more, hmm, colourful metaphors, than Acantha did.)
DLKmusic 28th Nov 2018, 2:23 AM edit delete reply

@PaulRein: Very good point. All the more reason to suggest that Noctis was the perfect choice to replace Kali as the leader of the Cassians, and why she's the best choice for guarding Acantha while in New Troy.

I think Noctis would consider it improper to be so frank in front of a high ranking official of a foreign country.

I don't think it's as much a matter of propriety, as it is a matter of Noctis not being one to broadcast her feelings.

Interesting. I wonder if the Epiphyte was born 'blind' to empathy or if it was an augment of some sort?
Hornet 28th Nov 2018, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
being that is suggested by its very name I'd say it was a condition found at birth. Actually it was probably discovered even before birth which makes it even more surprising that such a offspring would be allowed to be born. On the other hand such a birth could have been allowed if done with the intent that said offspring would be Deci's ambassador..
Some Ed 28th Nov 2018, 11:44 AM edit delete reply
Deci was probably not the only psychopath in the world. There are probably others. Allowing Epiphytes who are empathic nulls to be born would count for reasonable contingency planning at least.

One can argue that the Galina incident (Luna Star) provides plenty of rationale in its own right for keeping a couple of psychic 'nulls' around.
Oldarmourer 28th Nov 2018, 5:46 PM edit delete reply
20 minutes around His Royal Douchiness probably burned the psychic centres out...and mercifully so
megados 28th Nov 2018, 1:00 AM edit delete reply
I guess Acantha understands all too well what the Epiphytes must have experienced being near Decimus.
StLOrca 28th Nov 2018, 1:44 AM edit delete reply

Don’t beat around the bush, Lynn. Tell them what you really think.
Johninaustin 28th Nov 2018, 8:47 AM edit delete reply
I thought, being female, they would immediately go clothes shopping. Acantha is wearing borrowed stuff at this point.

@Centcomm, it's hot pointless! ;)
megados 28th Nov 2018, 12:37 PM edit delete reply
Ack, forgot to log in . . . . >_< *not pointless!
Oldarmourer 28th Nov 2018, 5:49 PM edit delete reply
no, it's very pointable (another new word created, that's three this week :) ) maybe it means you're getting used to the other meds ? anyway, I'd trade you numbers right now...
megados 28th Nov 2018, 9:48 PM edit delete reply
I usually use 'pointful'. :D
Rashala 29th Nov 2018, 11:57 PM edit delete reply

That the episode did not judge all of humanity based on loony deck is a good thing. Also avoiding his nutcase ness psychic my another point in their favor.
Romfire 1st Dec 2018, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
I keep thinking that she is still going to have to deal with all the losses of her childhood. As much as she talks bad about her brother, I am sure she really misses that her brother was essentially lost to her at a very young age due to his mental illness.
Romfire 1st Dec 2018, 12:09 AM edit delete reply
I meant misses as in feels a loss for not having a real brother sister relationship.
mjkj 2nd Dec 2018, 7:49 AM edit delete reply

Well, she needs her TV/smartComm - that soap continues to run... =P

Yeah, not feeling your puls must be weird... I am glad she is coping...

...yeah, douchie must have been a nightmare for the poor Epiphytes... good that they had a null around...

@author's notes: great to hear =)
